I'm useless in times like these
Susan, a friend from school, miscarriage today.
I don't know how I feel about this. On the one hand, I'm very sad because this must hurt her very much. On the other hand, she's got a very, very bad case of lupus and can barely take care of herself. And then, On the gripping hand, she's taken a job as an English teacher in Korea. She wouldn't be able to keep it if she were pregnant, so this is a good thing in that light.
How am I supposed to feel about this? I'm not prepared to handle things like this... I'm glad that my wife is good at this sort of thing. You want logical and controled decisions made under pressure? I'm your man... You want a shoulder to cry on? Umm... Er... Well, I'm not so useful there.
